Netgear RangeMax WPN824 AP

This wireless router, Model Netgear RangeMax WPN824, has recently attracted a great deal of attention in computer malls. The vendor claims that the coverage is 10 times better than 802.11b/g with the use of 7 built-in smart antennas and MIMO architecture. At any time, it will select the antenna which beams the best signal strength to reach the wireless clients.

I can not imagine how this tiny box with a book-size can have up to 7 antennas inside.
I guess in the not too distant future, we will soon witness the birth of 10-antenna or 12-antenna wireless routers if more antennas can really improve the performance.
